United seal Robertson loan deal

Dundee United have completed the signing of Sheffield United striker Jordan Robertson on a season-long loan.

The 19-year-old joins the Scottish Premier League club on loan until 31 May next season - but the Blades could recall him in January.

Robertson, who has not appeared for the Blades' first team, had loan spells at Northampton and Torquay last season.

United manager Craig Levein said: "Jordan is the type of direct young striker I've had in mind."

Levein said the striker would be a good addition to the squad and would bolster his attacking options.

"Although only 19, Jordon has already gained first-team experience on loan and proved that he can play at that level," Levein told the club website.

"I'm delighted that Sheffield United have given us permission to make use of this player and the fact that they want an option to take him back early shows you how highly they rate him."

Meanwhile, the SPL club have farmed out 19-year-old Marco Andreoni and 21-year-old William Easton on loan.

Wing back Easton has joined First Division outfit Stirling Albion, while midfielder Andreoni has moved to Third Division side Montrose.

Both will stay out on loan until January.
